Whether you’re planning a family in the near future or have already begun the journey toward parenthood, choosing the right health care provider and the right hospital has never been more important. That’s because when it comes to your well-being and the health of your new baby, you want to feel confident that you and your newborn are receiving the finest medical care delivered by a highly competent staff.
For more than 100 years, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital has been providing maternity care and welcoming newborns in a nurturing and comfortable environment. Providing up-to-date medical care, our experienced and compassionate staff is committed to making your delivery a positive and memorable experience. It is our privilege to care for you and your new baby, and to share this special moment in your life.
Personalized Nursing Care
We know that the birth of your baby is a personal experience, and we respect and support your choices during labor and delivery. During your labor, one of our specially trained nurses will provide the one-on-one support and assistance you need to have the labor and delivery that you want. From natural childbirth to advanced services, at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital you will find numerous options for the care you receive.
Family-Centered Maternity Care
Family-centered maternity care encourages family unity by focusing on the physical, social and emotional needs of you and your family. The goal of our Maternal-Newborn Service is to concentrate on your well-being and comfort, while allowing the flexibility that encourages the involvement of your birth partner and extended family members.
Early prenatal care is vital for you and your baby's health and wellness. There are many obstetrical providers who can care for you before, during and after your pregnancy. The range of providers includes obstetricians and family medicine physicians. The advantage to selecting a health care provider and hospital in your community means you won’t have to travel far when labor begins.
To find a physician in your area, call Hallmark Health's 24/7 Physician Referral Line at 1-800-540-9191.
Specialized Care Available Close to Home
Our special relationship with Tufts Medical Center allows babies requiring specialized care to remain close to home in your own community hospital. Access to specialists is available in a wide range of areas, including pediatric cardiology, neurology, surgery, and genetics testing and counseling. This added peace of mind is just one more reason for you and your family to choose Melrose-Wakefield Hospital for all your birthing and health care needs.
